I havent been updating my last thread and Ive been super busy since my dad passed away, and then my grandpa, and then I had a baby, and then my uncle died, and my grandmas been sick, etc. All within a 2 year span.
Here was my last thead on this forum: http://www.nano-reef...?...64741&st=20
But since I noticed this macroalgae section, I figure I will post here.
The tank is almost 2 years old and It did have some macro algae already in it but I just recieved another shipment of more macro today so the following pictures may be a bit cloudy.
Tiger Striped serpent starfish (hitch hiker)
Red calciferous (unknown)
Botryocladia (Red bubble)
Red mushroom (hitch hiker)
Other macro algaes are 2 types of halymenia (one is dragons breath), green grape calpura, cheato, some kind of red algae I couldnt identify but I never really tried either, bubble algae, and another type of red bubble algae different to the one I have in the picture above.
For corals I have: rics, mushrooms, zoas, candycane, frogspawn, neon green sinularia
There is also an unknown coral but i think its a small xenia frag that came as a hitch hiker on my new macro. Also a bunch of feather dusters, brittle stars, and some snails as well as 2 blue leg hermit crabs.
My tank is topped off with tap water. I store my TO water in 1 gal milk jugs and after much experimenting I am now putting additives into the jugs. 1 capful of Iron, 1cap of trace, 1 cap amino acids, 6 drops iodine (this one is new), 1/4 tsp KNO3, 1/2 tsp Ca, 1tsp Baking soda, 1 pinch KH2PO4.
